New survey reveals: Young people not interested in buying cryptocurrencies
Jul 08, 2019
Bitcoin is predicted a brilliant future. Some analysts even believe that the price of the world’s biggest cryptocurrency may be heading for $100,000.
But among today’s youth, interest in cryptocurrency is lukewarm.
In a survey commissioned by Business Insider, 1,884 Americans between ages 13 and 21 were asked how likely they were to purchase cryptocurrencies over the next six months. 52 percent responded “not at all likely”.
Only five percent responded “extremely likely”. Six percent said “very likely”, 15 percent “somewhat likely” and 17 percent responded “not very likely”.
Made prior to the bull market
The survey was made to find out what generation Z, people born between the late 90s and 00s, that is, thinks about cryptocurrencies.
It should be said that the survey was made in January, when the price of bitcoin had not yet begun to rise, Business Insider reports.
